Latest Cancer News

This is my father's latest group email - he is looking so much better, and by late April the CT scans will be done so we will finally have some kind of answer as to how the cancer responded. This is has been a long road (I can't imagine how weary my father is of this) and each of your prayers are precious to us. Thank you.

Hello Everyone,

Time has a way of moving on faster than we realize at times, so I thought enough had passed that a brief update was in order. I'm still recovering from my treatment that ended late last year, so we've not been able to do a CT scan to determine whether or not the cancer is gone. I would estimate that it will take another 6-8 weeks before we can proceed with the testing. Can't wait for that day of extreme anxiety.

In the meanwhile, I've been gaining strength and have been able to stabilize my weight at about 180 lbs., which would have easily won the office contest that took place in Atlanta about 15 months ago. I had an old fraternity friend that I ran into recently at a funeral tell me that he would like to be able to duplicate whatever I've done to keep my weight down, so I shared my method with him. Needless to say, he immediately changed his mind.

We finally sold our house in Atlanta, and I was able to celebrate with a round of golf the next day. Couldn't break 100, but I did complete the entire 18 holes and improved to 49 on the back nine. :) I'm looking forward to getting back in shape and life returning to normal (more golf).

Once again, I thank all of you for your support and concern.
Take care.
Bill (Sonny)
